AUTUMN ORDERS
This fall, after showing at the NYNOW Show in August, I was busy filling store orders.  The Hattersley Domestic loom was chugging along with the usual little bumps and idiosyncricies that come with a 70-year old loom.  Now with re-orders coming in, life is returning to a normal pace.

RE-COMMENCEMENT OF LAHAVE WEAVING WORKSHOPS
The summer of 2017 will see LaHave Weaving Workshops start up again!  Now that we have permanently moved to the LaHave River area (back to my birthplace), I am thrilled to be planning workshops once more, this time in a different location. Introductory/refresher and more advanced levels of weaving workshops, as well as some specific project workshops are planned. Watch here for news of the new location and the 2017 schedule.  Email me to get the 2017 schedule after the New Year. lesley@armstrongtextiles.ca
